- Founder, CPO

Kris started building homes with his brother Kurt in 2005, slowly building the Company and Brand through some turrbulant economic times in Calgary and Western Canada.  During this time, they developed what was one of Canada’s first and now most well known designer prefab home companies (Karoleena).  Kris was paramount in developing the overall look and design of the Karoleena buildings and products inside them.  In 2016 Karoleena was acquired by a publicly traded company and neither he or Kris are associated with the company today.
